    Eddies Old Vine Shiraz

    When you’re looking for the archetypal Barossa Valley Shiraz, look no further than this broodingly intense red. The core of this magnificent wine comes from three Old Vine vineyards planted by the Atze family in 1912, 1951 and 1975. There two workers Eddies Staehr (Andy Kalleske's great uncle) and Eddies Liebig planted the oldest of these three vineyards in 1912.

    Pristine and youthfully deep, it’s virtually impenetrable, with the ruby red colour showing the power and concentration that low yielding, seriously old vines provide. A gloriously aromatic bouquet led by sweet spices and backed up by damson plum, dark chocolate and the most subtle of toasty oak.

    The rich, enveloping palate is lush and smooth with bright fruit; dark cherries and Christmas cake made all the more complex by the layers of spices: cloves, cinnamon and anise. As anticipated, the finish is uber-long with a savoury, umami note that leaves you wanting another sip.

    Forgotten Hero Shiraz

    Forgotten Hero is sourced from a stunning vineyard planted by the Atze family in 1951; a survivor of the infamous vine pull scheme of the 1980s. John and Barb Kalleske rescued the old vineyard in 1983 and have nurtured its vines ever since.

    Forgotten Heroes three decades ago, these low yielding vines now provide intensely flavoured grapes for this classic Barossa Shiraz. Intuitive, small-batch winemaking, a minimum 20 months maturation in new French oak barrels, coupled with it only being bottled from the most outstanding vintages, results in a truly distinguished, complex and full-bodied wine.

    Due to the tiny size of this vineyard and the low yields, less than 70 cases are bottled in any one vintage.

    A rare treat, not to be missed.

     Zen Master Shiraz

    This is the Zen Master, a Barossa Shiraz made from one hundred year old vines. As concentrated and complex as the vines are ancient, this is a wine to cellar for upwards of 10 years. And the wait will be worth it. Zen Master is the epitome of Barossa Shiraz as we have come to know and love it.

    The inky-deep purple colour catches your eye while floral characters, violet and rose petal, stream from the glass. Drinking Zen Master is pure joy. It is silky smooth, utterly seamless and perfectly balanced. Ripe, black fruit characters dominate the palate complexed by pepper spices and dark chocolate, a note of vanilla and hazelnut.

    This wine is a master of its domain. It will reward your years of cellaring, or show powerful expressive fruit as a young red.

    Vineyard:

    Named in honour of the two Barossans who planted a vineyard in 1912, The Eddies Old Vine Shiraz celebrates the Barossa’s irreplaceable treasure-trove of old vineyards.  Combining the fruit from a rare ancient vineyard, planted in 1912, with fruit from a 59 year old vineyard and a 1975 block,  Andy Kalleske has captured the essence of these ancient vines which his parents, Barb and John have been nurturing for forty years.
